Celebrating its 5th Anniversary November 2-5, 2006, the Hilton Head Concours has chosen the Cars of Indiana as this year’s Honored Marque. Carolyn Vanagel, Executive Director of the Concours, said, “We are proud to honor the ‘golden era’ of automotive manufacturing in the United States.”
Kicking off the weekend-long event is Vintage Track Day at Roebling Road Raceway. Beginning on Thursday, November 2 with a practice round, Vintage Track Day will span two full days with the exhibition day offering hot laps and an Indy 500 reunion on Friday, November 3. Saturday will be family oriented with the Car Club Jamboree, which features music, food and a parade of cars plus the Quest for Speed & Style, a two-day, interactive display that allows children and adults alike to sit in and experience an array of racecars and the 2nd Classic & Collector Car Auction. Sunday will again target avid car fans and will showcase the Concours d’Elegance competition with over 150 entries competing for ‘Best-of-Show’. An added feature to this year’s event is the first ever Concours d’Elegance Fashion Show being held Saturday, November 4 at the Country Club of Hilton Head, which will mix period pieces from the original Concours in Paris with the latest trends in apparel.
The event will again be held on the Honey Horn event grounds at the Coastal Discovery Museum.
